Such a great place with variety of Italian food and delicious taste with reasonable prices. If you do not know about what dish should you take? Just ask any staff they will you. I loved it.

We visited this restaurant as a recommendation from our daugther as one of her favorites restaurants and I have to say that she was right! Delicious food, very nice decoration, it is a self-service so you go to different food stations and pick what you want to eat. Very nice service and food in general. Italian food very well prepared.

Fresh food quickly prepared to order. A good choice of pasta, pizza and salad. Child friendly with childrens food options, high chairs and changing facilities. Plenty of space for push chair/stroller. Downside is waiting times can be long if busy and you have to stand in a different queue for different food options. This could mean that others in your...

Vapiano seem to have tried to emulate this for Italian food - but seriously misunderstood what makes the model work. Vapiano cooks each dish to order - but only when the customer presents themselves at the cookery point. So there is no waiting staff, and customers spend much of their time in the restaurant in queues (rather than sitting at... More

Really easy restaurant. The price are cheap but the Pizza is really really good. They got also pasta and other tipical italian's foods. Not for a special dinner but for sure for a nice evening with friends.

On first impressions having not been before this place was a little confusing, you are issued a card to charge everything you have which forms your bill at the end. The only downside is it seems you have to queue for quite a long time whilst food is cooked in front of you. However, the food was lovely and very... More
